Three decades ago during my last visit, smog blanketed the IE making spectacular sunsets. Now that the air is clean, the view of the valley seems even nicer. The restaurant itself is Thunder Mountain Railroad, but the food is a notch above Disneyland. Service was proficient. The salad bar was pretty fresh. Not many vegetarian selections, but they will accommodate. And even without as many particulates, the sunset was still nice.

I haven't been there in quite awhile. The food was delicious and the view was outstanding. I had the 14 oz. rib eye steak and my friend had the prime rib. The food was outstanding. The entrees came with an never ending salad and soup bowl which you served yourself. The plates also came with garlic bread slices and creamy garlic mashed potatoes. Both of us to take food home in order to make room for their mud pie. It was so large we had to share. Cookie base with ice cream and walnuts.

This was the second time we have been to the Pomona Valley Mining Company and it is also the last time we will ever come again.

Our server was more on the slow side than the speedy side and the restaurant just wasn't that busy at all. When she took our order, we were told that because my wife and I wanted to share one meal that we would have to pay an extra $10 for sharing. What better way to tell your customers that you don't value their business and you don't want them to ever come back!!

But, they weren't through telling us to never come back again at that point; it gets better. When our steaks arrived they were cooked on the outside and COMPLETELY RAW on the inside!!! When I informed our server of that, she took the steaks away and then brought them back within 5 minutes. It was quite obvious they just threw them in a microwave as they we all dried out at that point! But, they weren't through telling us yet that they didn't value us as customers and that they never wanted us to come back again... it still gets better!!!

At the end of our meal, we were never offered and sort of dessert, so we simply paid the bill. We gave the server cash and a credit card as we had been dining with another couple and were paying separately, AND THE SERVER RIPPED US OFF BY NEVER BRINING BACK OUR CHANGE!!!!!! We never said "keep the change" and she never asked if we needed any change back, she just kept our money and that was it!!! As a result, she ended up with the $12 dollars she had stolen from us as her tip instead of the $30 dollars we would have normally left as a tip based on the cost of our dinners.

As a result of our experience here and the way we were treated, it is obvious that the Pomona Valley Mining Company doesn't value us as patrons and certainly doesn't value our business, so we will simply find a nicer steak house that does and we will eat there instead in the future.

If anyone's looking for an awesome brunch in the Pomona Valley, this is the place! The food items are hot, plentiful and great tasting! There is such a wide variety of food from American, Mexican, fresh seafood, tons of deserts and bottomless champagne. If you plan on trying this place for brunch, better bring your best appetite.
